The Pentax SP 8×40 binoculars are a no nonsense classic porro prism design , featuring great optics and a wide 8.2 degrees field of view . Perfect for bird watching and general use.
Fully multi-coated optics and BaK-4 prisms offer outstanding brightness with true colours and high contrast. The wide 5mm exit pupil will also offer great low light performance.
With an eye relief of 13mm, they may not be suitable for all spectacle wearers. But that is the only downside to what seems impressive specs for the price. The porro prism design and rubber body should make handling a breeze and be suitable for users wearing gloves.
With many binoculars now offering 42mm lenses, the older 40mm option is still a favourite objective lens size for many wildlife enthusiasts
